Category: Christian Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

A Cat Out of Egypt: The Prequel to Yeshua’s Cat

“On a cold winter’s night when the heavens almost seemed to reach down and touch the Earth, a child was born in a stable . . . and many miles away, as her last kitten struggled into the world, the Great Cat Who Is Bast saw the star and wondered.”

C.L. Francisco’s new novel, A Cat Out of Egypt, is a magical tale of Jesus’ “lost” years in Egypt. The feline narrator, Miw, is an Egyptian cat from the great temple at Bubastis, born under the Christ Child’s star. After corrupt priests plot her death, Miw escapes with Tikos, priestess of Bast, to a Jewish village, where Miw’s battle against a deadly scorpion wins the gratitude of Yeshua’s family. But when Tikos faces down an Egyptian mob, she betrays their location. She and Miw flee south, and Yeshua’s family, warned in a dream to leave Egypt, go with them. Pursuit escalates until both Egyptians and Romans are spreading nets to catch Miw, and a cadre of dark priests who stalked Yeshua at his birth stumble onto his trail while tracking Miw. A powerful Nabataean caravan leader joins Miw in defending Yeshua and his family against forces determined to destroy the child before he can reach Israel. The peril overshadowing his friends drives Yeshua deep within himself to realize many of his gifts at an early age, quickening self-awareness far beyond his years.

A Cat Out of Egypt is the second in the series, Yeshua’s Cats, the prequel to The Gospel According to Yeshua’s Cat, a story of Jesus of Nazareth told by a cat he carries hidden in his robes. Yeshua’s Cat has received consistently enthusiastic reviews since its publication in November, 2013, including 4½-star reviews from both Indie Reader and Self Publishing Review. Like Yeshua’s Cat, A Cat Out of Egypt combines theological subtlety, historical accuracy, and the perceptive observations of a companion cat.

With this chilling message a wave of terror unlike anything the world has ever seen sweeps the streets of Europe. Thirteen martyrs burn themselves alive in thirteen major cities simultaneously.

And this is just the beginning.

A religious cult calling itself the Disciples of Judas has risen in the Middle East. They twist the words of ancient prophecies to drive home the fear. Everything you believe in will be proved wrong. Everything you hold true will fail.

Day by day the West wakes to increasingly harrowing acts of terror. As fear cripples the capitals of Europe, the only question is where will be the next to fall? London? Rome? Berlin?

In a race against time – believing the terrorists intend to assassinate the Pope – Sir Charles Wyndham’s unique Special Ops team, codename Ogmios, track a labyrinthine course through truth, shades of truth and outright lies that takes them from the backstreets of London to the shadow of Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin and all the way into the heart of the Holy See itself.

Two people, passionately in love.
But each hides a deadly secret.

She is tracking this unknown assassin, sworn to stop him.
Neither realizes the truth about the other.
And neither knows that a terrifying predator is hunting them both. . . .

Essential Reading for Those Who Are Ready To Give Up What Doesn’t Work, And Embrace What Does (Spiritual Self-Help)

Think Differently, And Change Your Life For The Better

Does your life keep going on the same way, sometimes getting a little better, but not really fulfilling your dreams? Or, perhaps in spite of all your best efforts, life is getting harder. To change your life, you try many ideas about how to fix it. Some work for a brief time, others don’t work at all.

We all know that perception is reality

This means that in order for life to change for the better, permanently, our perception has to expand into a different way of thinking. We know that in order to change our life, we must think differently.

Good shifts happen, because we shift our behavior and habits. However, that isn’t enough, because we can only change within, and what, we currently perceive of as reality.

How To Think About God, As God Thinks About You

The only lasting solution is to shift our perception of reality. We must let go of our human way of thinking, and move into the Divine, infinite way, of thinking. “The Daily Shift” transforms us out of our small view thinking, and into the infinite viewpoint of God. God is the thinker; we are Its thoughts. With this spiritual awakening, we begin to think differently, and our experience of life shifts to more abundance, ease, and grace.

Do you believe in soul mates?

William Grafton had the perfect life with his lovely wife, Sara, and two wonderful children. But one day his perfect forever was shattered when Sara died suddenly, leaving him alone to raise his children and wonder how he would ever get through life without his soul mate. Five years later, he finds himself looking into a familiar pair of blue-green eyes that remind him of Sara. The woman is the exact opposite of his late wife, yet he finds he is drawn to her. But after a few strange occurrences, he begins to wonder-are these just coincidences or has his Sara come back to him as she once promised in the form of this new woman?

Annie Paxton doesn’t believe in soul mates or fate. She had watched her father die of a broken heart after her mother passed away and has since cast away any fairy tale ideas of love. Then she meets the man who has been haunting her dreams and she begins to see love in a whole new light. But her dream man is still tied to his deceased wife, and Annie doesn’t know if he will ever be able to break away from his past. As strange occurrences unfold, Annie wonders if William could ever truly love her for herself and not for the traits that remind him of Sara.

Were William and Annie brought together by fate, coincidence or by Sara keeping her promise?

The Historic Trial that Divided the Women of America

Pearl, a stunning flapper in the Roaring Twenties, has danced for Rudolph Valentino, and enjoys the company of any man she chooses–until she decides to carry on an affair with Morgan, a married rural man with two children.

Morgan’s wife, Ina, disguised in borrowed clothing, guns Pearl down when she finds her on a midnight train with her arms around Morgan. The next day, Pearl’s body is placed on public display for a town of strangers, and her killer is applauded in the streets by hundreds of country women.

A “dream team” of defense attorneys is hired, and the stage is set for a sensational jazz age clash between two distinct views of a woman’s role in modern society—that of the “virtuous” rural mother dressed in gingham and the “scarlet woman” from the city who would deny a mother and her babies the necessities of life.

Should death ever be the price for adultery? That is the question the jury—and readers—are faced with in THE UNWRITTEN LAW.

Gripping, thought-provoking, and engaging–the reader of The Unwritten Law becomes a participant in one of the most morally divisive murder trials in American history!

82 Desire is the EIGHTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon mystery series by Julie Smith.

A WIFE’S WORST NIGHTMARE…

At the airport, the husband says, “I’ll get the car, dear. You wait with the bags.” And she waits till doomsday. Turns out the car’s still there. But hubby’s not.

It seems Councilwoman Bebe Fortier has misplaced her equally prominent husband, United Oil VP Russell Fortier. Across town, part-time detective/poet Talba Wallis has a simple wish–to find out what Russell Fortier’s disappearance has to do with her. But the private investigator who hired her to spy on Fortier can’t help her out. He’s lying in his office with a bullet in his chest. Reporter Jane Storey is walking down the same mean, sultry street—she’s on the brink of the biggest story of her life. But she’s got a bad feeling she’s being played like a deck of cards by a tipster with a malevolent agenda.

Now Orleans Police Detective Skip Langdon soon senses something big starting to unfold, something a lot bigger than a missing husband. Something rooted in corruption, resulting in violence—and motivated by that old demon . . . desire.
For voracious mystery fans of writers like Nevada Barr, Sue Grafton, Laura Lippmann, Ace Atkins, Marcia Muller, Linda Barnes, and Randy Wayne White.

She struggles to run a business as The Organizer, while she stacks relationship carcasses in the closet of her own completely unorganized life. Her only real friend is her younger sister, Rachel.

Rachel is outgoing, risqué and happily gay. The only people who don’t know this little secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley. Rachel struggles mightily to dodge her mother’s constant attempts to set her up with “nice Christian boys”; while holding down a job at the bakery and keeping up with her rock-star girlfriend!

Gwenn uncovers a photo that brings her imaginary world careening into reality. She’s forced to ask herself if wealthy artist, Daniel Gregory is the answer she’s been seeking or a grand delusion.

Break-ups, meltdowns, family secrets, wild nights and finally a journey of self-discovery to exotic New Zealand keep Gwenn and Rachel stumbling toward independence.

Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she’ll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.

As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought. She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps.

When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time–to a Father whose love is inescapable.

Old sins leave dark and lasting scars…

Hannah Stuart thinks she’s safe within the dark and private rooms of Kenninghall, her friend Milo’s rambling and secluded Washington estate. Here she hides from the outside world, nurturing her depression, and lost in a past and painful tragedy she can’t let go. She lives her days by rote, each day the same as the one before.

But change, for good or ill, is both relentless and inescapable.

Milo dies, leaving Hannah a fortune and three letters. Letters telling of old sins and ugly lies, now tangled anew in more shocking depravities. Letters the rich and powerful will kill to suppress. Letters Hannah is driven and honor bound to expose—and time is running out.

When Milo’s long-lost relatives and former business partners start showing up at Kenninghall, Hannah doesn’t know who to trust. In desperation she turns to the mysterious Yates Lang.

Yates has the experience to help her, but he also has secrets of his own—and a compelling reason to destroy the letters.

He may be falling for the reclusive beauty of Kenninghall, but when love gets entangled in existing loyalties, bad blood, and a perfect evil, it can get you killed.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Westen, Ohio, where small town romance meets an edge of suspense…
“Welcome to Westen. I’m Lorna Doone. Yep, spelled just like the cookie and just as sweet. I own the Peaches ‘N Cream Café, the center of all social get-togethers and gossip here in our small town. You might think nothing much happens in a small mid-western town, but as my friend Harriett says, things aren’t always what they appear. Romance and suspense can happen almost anywhere and to anyone. Take our girl Emma for example…”

Emma Lewis has a lot on her plate. As a single mother trying to raise two precocious twin boys, she works two jobs to make ends meet while also caring for an aging mother who is having trouble getting through each day. Having faced one scandal nearly seven years ago, the last thing Emma needs is adventure, romance or a man in her life, especially a wickedly sexy doctor. Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt.

So when the small town’s only doctor goes on vacation and his handsome nephew takes over, Emma is shocked to not only find the man she once had a teenage crush on standing in her bedroom, but suddenly he’s accusing her of being a neglectful parent. Despite what the arrogant man may think, she’ll do anything to protect her sons, even from his so-called good intentions.

Doctor Clint Preston came to his small town home of Westen for the year to fill in as the town doc while his uncle took a long needed vacation. Burned out by long shifts in an urban hospital’s ER and the tragic loss of a boy who was the victim of neglect, Clint also needs a sense of peace and calm to try to find his passion for his medical career once more.

In his first week back in town, he’s angered to find two boys in his clinic with broken wrists and no accompanying parent, he is determined to confront their mother to prevent further injuries to his young patients. However, the feisty redhead he meets quickly dispels his belief that she’s a neglectful mother. Despite her bravado and stubbornness, Clint can see her situation is more critical than she wishes to face. Before he can think better of it, he finds himself volunteering to help care for her sons, face the devastating news about her mother’s health and oversee the remodeling of her home.

Slowly, Emma and Clint give into their mutual attraction and begin to build a relationship with the help of the slightly off-beat characters that inhabit Westen. Then a menace from Emma’s past terrorizes her and the life she’s forged with her sons. When a murder for hire scheme threatens Emma’s life, Clint realizes how much she and her family have come to mean to him. He will do anything to protect them.

Can Clint and Emma come together to prevent losing either or both of her sons? Can their new found love survive the danger threatening them all?

His supporters and a good proportion of would-be voters think he’s just a kindly preacher-man and handily crucify anyone who says otherwise. Enter Detective Skip Langdon, who met the Rev. Errol Jacomine on a case, finds him pretty much the personification of evil, and can point to a pile of corpses to prove it.

So finding the proof to discredit Jacomine becomes her obsession until he kidnaps a couple of kids she cares about—and then it turns into a mission from hell.

Langdon has to bull her way through a hurricane to find the small army of Jacomine’s thugs who’ve got 15-year-old Sheila, the closest thing she has to a niece, and Sheila’s friend, who’s having the mother of inappropriate love affairs—with someone dangerously close to Jacomine.

Introductions–Book 1
With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang Sorenson abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. What she craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary, because for her, being different meant being cast out alone.
When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys, each nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have friends.
Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers her friends are far from what she’d expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?
Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.
The Academy, ever vigilant.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Are you looking for more balance and zest in life?

Do you feel like you get anxious and nervous, for no particular reason?
Do you think that you could accomplish more if you were more relaxed?
Would you like to feel more centered, focused, and mindful?
Are you interested in natural wellness treatments for health and relaxation?
Would you rather avoid standard, chemical, and anti-anxiety pills?

Your search stops here! “Holistic Relaxation” offers a unique and non-complicated natural therapy coaching that can help you fight those anxious feelings and daily stress.

My name is Marta, and I am a certified massage therapist, as well as a holistic wellness coach. I am in love with natural and holistic therapies because they helped me increase my quality of life, as well as leading me to a calmer and more focused state of mind. I know what it is like to struggle with anxiety and having no zest for life. You simply feel trapped…. You see other people feeling happy and relaxed, and you feel like you are missing out on life. This is what was happening to me before I finally discovered the amazing world of holistic therapies.

Some people, including me, are more prone to anxiety attacks, as well as increased stress on a daily basis. I am quite a nervous person by nature, but I believe we all have some really powerful tools to fight it if we want to. The solution is to think of our problems in a holistic way and try to get to the root of any imbalances in our bodies and minds.

Feeling like anxiety is taking over? Feeling overwhelmed for no reason?
Would you like to feel light, happy, and stress-free?

I have written this book to show you how you can utilize very simple techniques that are FREE, easy, and effective. These include:
• Simple Meditation
• Music Therapy
• Relaxation Techniques
• Breathing Practices

“HOLISTIC RELAXATION” will also teach you all about Natural and Holistic Therapies that are very inexpensive and EXTREMELY effective. They get to the root of the problem instead of just masking the anxiety symptoms. Some examples are:

• Homeopathy
• Bach Flower Remedies
• Phytotherapy
• Balanced Nutrition
• Aromatherapy

Natural Therapies are not only about herbs; there is also focus on body work and massage. Throughout my book, you will get enough motivation and encouragement to also try:
• Massage Therapy that is centered on helping anxiety, stress, and depression
• Body Work like yoga and tai-chi. They are all about taking consciousness of the PRESENT MOMENT and soothing your body and mind

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Waves of pure energy are quite happy hanging in the cosmos, traveling at the speed of light to brighten up the sky—until dawn breaks. Literally.

When sentient light fractures, it zaps into human bodies and becomes trapped. Without any memories to guide them, a handful of confused beings whose skin tones are now specific colors, struggle to understand humanity while it’s quite clear they shouldn’t be here.

The few humans clued in to Earth’s invasion are drawn to their fate with hearts wide open as they struggle to survive and protect.

California. A widower’s twelve-year-old son is rather young to bring home a woman, especially a collapsed green beauty too frightened to open her eyes.
Arizona. A divorcee blinks hard, but the gorgeous red guy stepping in front of her car is still red—hello, ditch. When she comes around, she wonders which layer of hell she’s fallen into.

Ohio. A teen also fears he’s dealing with the demonic, but no matter how dangerous things become, he’s determined to stand by a man with inhumanly blue eyes.

Splintered Energy is an Earth based sci-fi/suspense/romance novel and the first episode in a four book series. It is not a stand-alone novel. Episode 2, The R Word, picks up where Splintered Energy leaves off. House of Seven, episode 3, leads to episode four, Under Color, and the final novel in the series.
